Many people are not aware that our men and women in the service still have rights of lawsuits against manufacturers of military products for their defects or negligent construction if they injure the service person. However, there are more hurdles to overcome to successfully hold the manufacturer responsible for an injury to a person while in the service.
Specifically, the United States Supreme Court in 1988 decided the only case, handled by The Franecke Law Group, which specifically set forth the criteria by which a manufacture can be sued. The cases is Boyle v. United Technologies. That case said that you may sue a manufacture if the specifications for the product are not specific, the product is built according to the manufacture designed and not the military, and if the manufacturer did not warn the military of dangers inherent in the product not already known by the government.
The Franecke Law Group has successfully handled numerous cases dealing with the failure of military products causing injuries and death to service personnel while on duty. However, it is a very specialized area of the law requiring experience and knowledge which few attorneys have. If you or a loved one have been injured or killed by a military product, you must seek the advice of an attorney specializing in this area who can help you understand your rights and possibilities to recover compensation under the circumstances.
